Luke Bassuener of Asumaya on "The Euphemist"

Luke Bassuener of Asumaya on "The Euphemist"

The Madison musician discusses his new album, his journeys to Africa, and twisting language.

Next week, Madison musician Luke Bassuener will release The Euphemist, a new album from his solo project Asumaya. Bassuener—who also plays in Control, Faux Fawn, and Calabash Boom—talked with me earlier this week about Asumaya's blend of West African music, dub and post-punk, and the complex politics and travels that informed the new album's songs. You can also hear bits of the new album during the interview. There are a couple more new tracks on the Asumaya Soundcloud, and the new album will be released on March 24 through the Asumaya Bandcamp page.

Shout out to WORT's Dylan Brogan for producing this segment; a shorter version aired this week on In Our Backyard.
